This is a call for all concerned Malaysians and proponents of democratic rights in Tasman Region to come together in solidarity for Bersih 3.0! Bersih is a collation for electoral reforms that will march worldwide for our fellow Malaysians who will bravely "duduk bantah" in Dataran Merdeka, KL.

We join them in protest because:
- Unlike us, they face down the unrepealed Internal Security Act and the newly-minted Peaceful Assembly Act.
- We demand the fundamental right to vote as overseas citizens of Malaysia.

With the next general elections looming, and the Malaysian government's increasingly nonchalant attitude towards civil liberties, the significance of this rally will be twofold. Not only does the Malaysian Government and Election Committee continue to turn a deaf ear towards serious problems in the electoral system, many Malaysians' basic right to dissent has been made a mockery out of with the implementation of the deceptively-title Peaceful Assembly Act in 2011, as well as the Prime Minister's continual refusal to repeal the constantly-abused Sedition Act. It is time to send a clear and strong message from all over the world.

Bersih 3.0's demands are:
1) That the EC resigns.
2) That the election process must be reformed before the 13th general election.
3) That international observers should be invited to monitor the polls.
